How do I get this toolbox? When I click to get the toolbox up it is a single narrow vertical column without the bucket fill subsection your screenshot shows. –  Brenton Horne Mar 22 '13 at 15:13
    
If you grab the corner of the tool box you can expand it. When its big enough select "Windows" > "Dockable Dialogs" > "Tool Options" from the menu a new widow opens. You can drag and drop that into the toolbox if you wish –  Warren Hill Mar 22 '13 at 16:55

The black square in the highlighted area defines the foreground color. This color applies to all coloring tools, like the bucket

Where do I find this window. There are no other windows in my GIMP. –  Brenton Horne Mar 22 '13 at 15:04
    
@BrentonHorne: for GIMP versions prior to 2.8, the <kbd>Tab</kbd> key will open and close the two additional windows: Toolbox and Layers. –  carnendil Mar 22 '13 at 16:16
